Northern Rivers Community Groups & Events
People of all ages can have a go, and it is also one of very few sports where there is no discrimination of gender; men and women compete on equal footing.
There are several disciplines, such as fullbore, match rifle and service rifles classes. The major skill in target sports is gauging conditions, such as light or wind, and predicting where the target will be hit.
Firearm safety is taught, along with marksmanship. Visual perception is a skill that becomes highly developed through target sports. Competitions are held regularly at both club and district levels.
For more information on how you can get involved in rifle shooting as a target sport, call club secretary Graeme Hoskins on 6621 3944.
